I was challenged with my own leadership style, especially in communication and feedback. I learned I don't listen enough. Afterwards, I sat with my staff, asked questions, and then really listened to their responses. It was powerful for us. We use the videos and tools from GLS all year long with the people we serve.Monsignor Craig Harrison
The lessons that you'll learn at the Summit are lessons that you'll take the rest of your life and make you a better person.Greg Gallion
I found the speakers to be phenomenal. They spoke about real, everyday issues. I was able to bring back ideas for my own teams. GLS is an investment in yourself, in your family, in your community and our city.Karen Goh
Attending this conference helped me to see the importance of leading with integrity and gave me some very practical and inspirational ways to do that. I left with a greater sense of responsibility for being a good leader and how I can impact everyone around me.Ingrid Lake
